Bite-Size Tomato Cup Sushi - Video Recipe

Juicy tomato and rich tuna melt in your mouth good.

This is my award winning sushi recipe which I won the outstanding performance award at "sushi project" by iCommons Summit'08 in Sapporo.

iCommons Summit put out a call for sushi recipes and designs from around the world, so that they can promote Japan's "sushi culture" to a new level, not just as part of Japanese culture but as a "world culture".
My prize-winning recipe is "Tomato Cup Sushi". I stuffed sushi rice and tuna salad in tomatoes. Those are juicy and easy to eat. The sweet and sour flavor of sushi vinegar matches perfectly to the tuna salad! You gotta try ;)

Regarding the sushi project, I was interviewed by Hana TV. It was broadcast only in Hokkaido, though.
